DNN has undergone a significant transformation over the past 4 years. The rebrand from DotNetNuke to DNN was just the start. The entire platform was migrated from VB to C#, the user interface was overhauled providing a much-improved user experience, dramatic improvements in functionality & performance were made including support for social collaboration and mobile devices. Recently API's that make modern, client-side development easy have been introduced as well. The underlying technology platform has migrated from ASP.NET 2.0 to ASP.NET 4.0 and DNN has also integrated Microsoft's Web API as the service framework at the core of the DNN solution. All of these enhancements provide developers with a lot of power in one solution.
In previous Professional DotNetNuke books, DotNetNuke founder Shaun Walker authored a popular introductory chapter covering the evolution of the DNN open source project. He will expand this initial chapter with information about venture capital funding, commercialization, and software business insights - which will be of interest to DNN enthusiasts, as well as technology entrepreneurs.
